FAREWELL

Dale Warland, founder of the internationally acclaimed a cappella choral ensemble, the Dale Warland Singers (DWS), has announced his resignation as music director effective June 30, 2004. As a result, the DWS board of directors has determined that the 2003-04 season will be the last concert season for the Singers and there will not be a search for a new music director. The upcoming season marks the 31st year for the Singers, the first professional choir in the Twin Cities.

At the height of a celebrated career, perhaps most notable for its impact on 20th century choral music repertoire through the commission of 240 new works, Warland feels he can best continue to serve the field by dedicating his energy to teaching, guest conducting, recording, and composing.
